    Nested Effects help

    So... after using MC for more than 10 years I have forgotten how (if) I can move multiple effetcs to a new clip.

    I have a clip which has a color correction, resize and a vingette effect. I want toi replace the clip ith another. Whats the easiest/fastest way to add ALL 3 nested effects to the new clip?


    Thanks for the help.

    Try stepping all the way into the clip on the timeline, load the new clip into the source and set the in point, select the target track of the clip you stepped into on the timeline and replace edit.  When you step all the way out again you should see all your effects applied to the new clip.


    An alternative is to add an edit point at the start and end of the clip on an empty track above it and apply all your effects to that instead of directly to the clip.  This new layer will effect everything below it and can be copied and pasted as much as you like.

    My way is to in/out the clip you want - CTRL + ALT it to the preview monitor - lay it back in to the sequence, step all the way in to the base of the nested effect and replace the clip.

    If the effects are not nested directly on top of a clip, i.e on V2 if your clip is on V1, you can do the same thing,but you wont have to step in and replace the clip. Doing it this way also lets you drag it from the preview monitor to a bin and then you've always got the nested effects ready to drop in. Of course you can do this with the top method, but without the added step of going to replace the clip.

    There are (most likely) other ways - but this is my muscle memory quick way.
